Topjoy has just announced their second generation Butterfly 7.8-inch Android tablet Gen 2.  This employs the second-generation DES screen technology that can display more colours at a higher resolution.  This is a pre-order that comes out in late August 2023.

The Topjoy Butterfly Gen 2 features a DES Slurry screen technology. Users can view everything in colour, turn the colour mode off wholly, and view everything in black and white. The resolution is 1404x1872 with 300 PPI for black and white content and 150 for colour.  There is a front-lit display to read in the dark.

There are various speed modes to increase performance. These include the Display mode, Graphic mode, Web mode, and lastly, Video mode. Also, the lower the order, the higher the device speed, so it is the highest in Video mode and lowest in Display mode. That said, the rate is still lacking to allow for even decent levels of video-watching experience.

Underneath the hood is a Cortex A55 quad-core 1.8 GHz CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.  Wireless technologies the device supports include Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 8.2.11 ac/b/g/n 2.4G and 5G. There is a noise-cancelling dual MIC onboard and an integrated 0.8W speaker unit with decent performance. It has USB-C for charging and transferring data. It is powered by a 3,200 mAh battery, which should last a few weeks.

This device is geared towards taking notes, freehand drawing or editing PDF documents. It comes with a stylus. The pen is triangular in its build but becomes circular at the top, where the eraser is placed. The pen offers 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and will work just fine even with a five-point touch effect on the screen. The top contains different options to change the pen styles or choose from 30 pre-set colours.

Other options you have include Eraser for selective erasing though there is also the option to clear the entire page at one go. There are eleven pre-set page backgrounds as well that you can make the most of. Here you can use images or PDFs as well for the background which is cool. There is the Voice Recorder button as well which will let you copy notes and such via the dual mics the device comes with. There is the Share option too and will let you share stuff via the social media apps that are installed on the device.

It is set to run on Google Android 11 and cannot access the Play Store. However, Topjoy is talking about introducing this closer to the release date. Users can install their own Android apps via sideloading or install 3rd party app markets such as the Amazon App Store or Samsung Galaxy App Store.
